Team GB stars will be present at the Manchester Velodrome for a track taster session for industry members on 15th Sept.

Ride the boards with the Bicycle Association

Whether you’ve got track accreditation or not, you’re welcome to join fellow industry riders on the Bicycle Association track day, on Monday September 15th at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester. Staffers and guests from Raleigh, Trek, Fishers and Moore Large have already confirmed attendance – there’s space for seven more riders. The BA’s invite is open to members and non-members as well as bike shop owners and their staff.

The taster session starts at 9.30am and lasts until lunchtime. 

"We’ve very fortunate to have secured use of the velodrome," said the BA’s Phillip Darnton. "It’s in use constantly, which is a testament to the success of British Cycling. Industry members and their guests would be welcome to join us."

There will be two track sessions – suitable for absolute newbies as well as experts – and there’s also a meet-and-greet time with riders from the Great Britain Cycling Team.
